The hassle of finding a pet-sitter while you’re away is eliminated, plus you get a fun fuzzy companion to spend the day with in beautiful sunny Miami. Once you decide to explore the city with your companion, check out these pet-friendly destinations.
Parks and Beaches
Miami is all about the beaches, and there’s no reason both you and your dog can’t enjoy the sunshine and waves. Haulover Beach has access to a both park and beach for dogs, no leash required! The park is open from 8am to sunset for seven days a week, and contains shade trees, picnic tables, drinking fountains for dogs and people, waste containers, and even separate enclosures for small dogs (less than 35 lbs.) and large dogs (more than 35 lbs.) Locatedacross from the dog park, the beach is only open from 8am to 3pm on Wednesdays and weekends.
Hobie Beach (or Windsurfer Beach) is another pet friendly beach, with the requirement of having your pooch on a leash. The beach itself is quite small but is perfect for your dog since the water is shallow, which allows dogs to play and swim without you having to worry about any strong waves or currents.
Pet-Friendly Shops and Mall
Shopping for or with your pet is easy in Miami. There are pet friendly malls such as Bal Harbour Shops. Here you can find a number of luxury stores including Tiffany & Co, Fendi, and Alexander McQueen. It’s the perfect place to browse and get an opinion of the latest high-end designs with your incredibly stylish dog. If you’re craving more, check out the Merrick Park Shops where the mall is not the only place that is pet friendly. Some individual shops will even let you bring in your dog with you!
If you wanted to treat your pet to their own shopping spree, try out The Dog Bar, which is the ultimate boutique for your canine. Products include various types of dog food and treats, dog beds, cleaning products, toys, stylish collars, leashes, outerwear, and carriers and totes. By the end of it, your dog will be truly spoiled! Once you’ve finished up your dual species shopping spree and gotten hungry, drop by Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink where they have a pet friendly patio and even a peanut butter treat for your dog.
Pet Grooming/Pet Sitters
Sometimes business calls and having your pet tag along isn’t an option. The easiest way to deal with this is with CorporateStays very own pet sitting concierge service, where we’ll take care of all the details so you can work without worry. There is also Miami Beach Pet Spa, where this full-service salon can give your dog or cat baths, haircuts, creative grooming, and provide daycare from 9am to 4:30pm. Scottie Paws Pet Resort & Spa uses all natural, organic, and eco-friendly products for their services, with grooming, daycare, non-anaesthetic dental cleaning for both dogs and cats, and overnight cage-less stays. If you would rather wash your pet yourself, they have a self-service pet wash too.
While you’re enjoying your time in Miami, remember to always bring plenty of fresh water and a bowl for your pet. The heat, salt water, and running around can easily dehydrate them! And for all you animal lovers, know that in most our Miami vacation rentals, your beloved pets are most welcome!
